Thematic connections reveal themselves in two delicately balanced triptychs featuring seemingly unrelated characters. DRIVE MY CAR director Ryusuke Hamaguchi spins chance encounters into worlds of infinite possibility in WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY, comprised of three surprising, exquisitely bittersweet shorts revolving around love, coincidence, and the mysteries of human connection. Kelly Reichardt similarly finds subtle resonances in three self-contained but interlocking episodes in her quietly masterful CERTAIN WOMEN, which sets intimate portraits of women navigating moments of personal upheaval against the expansive vistas of the American West.
